Many families lose significant real property through Texas adverse possession claims. More specifically, many families lose mineral interests, houses, and land by failing to protect their property. As a Texas adverse possession lawyer, I commonly work with families to fight attempts to adversely possess Texas real property.
Texas Remote and Large Landowners as Well as Heirs and Beneficiaries Often Lose Real Property
Families lose real property to adverse possession for many reasons. More specifically, out of state owners who own Texas real estate remotely commonly lose control of their property as they don’t live in Texas and cannot keep an eye on the property. Further, landowners with multiple homes or significant real estate holdings can also lose control of Texas real estate as house, mineral interest, or land can be overlooked.
Additionally, heirs and beneficiaries often lose control of Texas inherited property. In fact, many heirs and beneficiaries commonly do not have clear records regarding inherited real property.
Prevent Adverse Possession By Maintaining Control and Records of Real Property
Families lose real property through adverse possession claims because they lose control of their real property. For this reason, families who maintain control of property protect their wealth. In other words, families who exercise continuous control over their real property, prevent adverse possession claims.
Families also prevent potential adverse possession risks by maintaining keep clear records of property ownership and make sure any permissive use of the property.
Protect Texas Mineral Interests from Loss
Texas mineral interests are extremely susceptible to adverse possession claims. More specifically, owners commonly lose mineral interests through adverse possession claims because mineral interests often sever from surface rights. When families sever mineral interests, they should maintain clear records of the owned severed interests. Without these records, heir and beneficiaries often lose inherited mineral interests.
